 Our History:

 We were off the Internet radar for many years.

 However, realizing the potential for digital reading, we left paper.

 Our roots go back to...

paper publications as early as 1978 

 Where?

New York City publishing (1986-1996) experience
Years in editing and review (1999-2007)
Certified and university trained staff (e.g. B.S., M.A., LLC)
History of published authors

Experienced in media (PBS, TV, cinema)

In 2010, we added a business restructuring adviser, Luann F. Bridges.


2006: Llanos Publishing founded
                

Since 2007: e-book Publish original works of new authors

WE KNOW...
At Llanos Publishing, we believe it is sad that a new author’s self-published book should cost $29.95 (hard-cover) and $14.95 (paperback)... Sometimes TWICE these prices!

We know that avid readers buy a celebrity author’s bestseller book at the local price club for about half the list prices—often as low as: $8.69/!!

How much are you willing to spend on a book?

We know readers rarely buy books written by unknown authors at $29.95.

We know that without author's name recognition or a fan base, sticker-shock bar code prices, kill sales and new author's dreams.

For the unrecognized author we ask:


Why not sell your book as an e-book?

   Why e-books are the way to go?

 Paper books are expensive

 Paper book production destroys  the environment

 Paper books take up enormous library space
 
 Paper books are expensive to replace, if lost or damaged. E-books are found on the Internet, many e-book retails replace them FREE!

              First Time Authors...

First time authors, without a publishing record, have a one in a thousand chance of publishing their book with the first publisher they query1. And, each year fewer publishers exist, and more and more writers appear.  Also, fewer and fewer bookstore shelves exist to sell the thousands of new books made every year!

                                     ~*~

The Query Letter...an exercise in futility...

Maybe....

New authors query because almost everyone does, the local writing group says to do so, but they do not know the whole truth: thousands of authors (all unknown) wait and wait for a reply from a decreasing smaller pool of publishing houses. They later find most publishers never reply; worse never saw their query. Where do the query letter self-addressed stamped envelopes go? Answer: Because the volume of query letter mail is huge, most everything is trashed. It doesn’t take long for new authors to learn: you need a connection, a name, and a great deal of luck to get through the process; and often authors give away their creations.
